### What equation best describes the table of ordered pairs?

This kind of question usually accompanies a specific table of ordered pairs. The idea is that the ordered pairs take the form of (x, f(x)) where the first number of the ordered pair x, is a value of the variable for some equation. When that value is used in place of the variable in the equation, we can calculate a specific value. That calculated value appears as the second value of the ordered pair and…

### In managerial accounting How do you calculate variable cost?

A variable cost is a cost that is not constant. Variable costs can include the materials used in order to manufactor an item. If the costs vary from month to month when supplies are ordered, this would be a variable cost. They can be calculated by calculating the number of materials needed and then dividing by the units produced, to determine what your cost was in order to manufactor the item.

### Is a nominal variable a discrete variable?

No. A discrete variable is one that takes discrete numerical values. But a discrete variable can be ordered while a nominal one cannot. Age, in years, is a discrete variable, and you can say that a 10-year old is younger than a 20-year old who is younger than a 40-year old. Favourite fruit would generate a nominal variable but you cannot say that a banana is more than an apple which, in turn, is more…

### What is the ordered pair of y5x?

It is difficult to tell. Limitations of the browser used by Answers.com means that we cannot see most symbols. It is therefore impossible to give a proper answer to your question. Please resubmit your question spelling out the symbols as "plus", "minus", "equals" etc. Furthermore, what you are asking about appears to be an equation in two variable, x and y. If that is the case, there are infinitely many ordered pairs, so asking for…

### Is birthday a categorical variable?

No, date of birth is an ordinal variable. Ordinal variables are similar to categorical variables except that an ordering of the values is possible. With date of birth there are obviously many possible day/month/year "categories" but they are discrete and can clearly be ordered from highest to lowest or vice versa. A categorical variable might be something like animal type. Each animal type fits into a class, but there's no intrinsic ordering of cow, sheep…

### What ordered pairs lies on the graph of hx equals -2x2?

hx = -2x2 We have to assume that 'h' is some constant that you know but we don't. The graph of this equation contains no ordered pairs, since there's only one variable. If you must graph it, then the space you need to use is the number line. The two solutions to the equation are points on the number line ... one point at [ zero ], and the other at [ - h/2 ]…
